Research Trainees

Research Trainees at Horizon

Research is a key component in the education for future healthcare professionals. Our dedicated Research Project Facilitator is available to support all students and residents in their research at Horizon, including questions on:

  • Project feasibility
  • Developing and conducting research within a hospital environment… 
  • Data analysis
  • Presenting your findings

We have an Orientation Checklist for Research, but advise you to engage with them as early as possible in your project.

Types of Trainees in Horizon Research

  • Medical Students: Research in Medicine (RIM) is Dalhousie Medical School's mandatory research training program, and was the first program of its kind in Canada. At the beginning of their first year, medical students begin to learn basic clinical research skills. Throughout the program, Horizon clinicians and staff have mentored medical students at all five of our main hospitals.
  • Medical Residents: Medical residents at Horizon may select to complete a research study to fulfill their program's requirements for scholarly activity.
  • Hospital Pharmacy Residents: As part of Dalhousie University's 12-month Hospital Pharmacy Residency Program, residents have 6-8 weeks designated time to complete a research project relating to hospital pharmacy practice. Residents are either located in Moncton or in Saint John.
  • Undergraduate and Graduate Students: Our office also supports research requests from undergraduate and graduate students in nursing, psychology, applied health services, and allied health professions at the University of New Brunswick and the New Brunswick Community College.
